Amongst the organisations Roma have teamed up with are the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children, as well as Missing Kids.
This is not the first success the Italian outfit have had when it comes to tracking down lost youths, with one girl found in London during August.
The midfielder joins a day after the derby clash with Lazio, a match which ended with honours even as Giallorossi left back Aleksandar Kolarov slotted a penalty against his old side before Luis Alberto grabbed a leveller for the Biancocelesti.
